Back in 2018, Tanushree Dutta shared controversial statements about Bollywood director Vivek Agnihotri. She accused Vivek of s*xual harassment while shooting for Chocolate which also starred Nana Patekar, Suniel Shetty, Irfan Khan and Anil Kapoor in pivotal roles. Later, the director’s lawyer issued a press release against the allegations and called it ‘an intent to attract publicity.’ Scroll below to read the scoop.
Nidhish Mehrotra who happened to be the director’s lawyer issued a press release stating that Tanushree is being sued for defamation. Vivek shared the same on his official Twitter handle too with a caption that read, ‘The press release.’
Vivek Agnihotri’s press release read, “The allegations levelled against my client Mr Vivek Agnihotri by Ms Tanushree Dutta for misbehaviour and/or harassment are absolutely false, frivolous and vexatious. These allegations are deliberate and have been borne with an intent to attract publicity and wreak personal vendetta against my client with malafide intentions. On the instruction of my client, we have served a legal notice to initiate defamation action against her.”
